In this day and age, creators are the bedrock of entertainment. Cole and Katie Zucker, co-founders of Hey Hero, give fans the ability to connect directly with their favorite creators in a symbiotic relationship of learning and monetization. Bubble's no-code web app builder was just the platform Cole and Katie were looking for when they were deciding how to build Hey Hero with the help of Imua Studio.
Tell us about your app and what it does.
Hey Hero is a platform that enables fans to connect with their favorite Creators for 1:1 personalized advice. We are Cameo meets Masterclass, allowing fans to gain backstage access to Creators they want to connect with while providing Creators with a new form of monetization.
How does your app work?
Creators make a profile on Hey Hero, set their price, and then respond to fans with a personalized video message within 7 days. We have hundreds of Creators across many different categories and social platforms, from fitness, interior design, fashion, wellness, and many more.
Tell us a little about your background and how you discovered no-code tools like Bubble.
Katie and I started Hey Hero together in March of 2020. I am an entrepreneur who previously founded an LED lighting company and sold it to a PE fund in 2017. Katie's background is in People Management, and was most recently the CPO of a hedge fund here in LA. We discovered no-code while looking for a solution that could help us to prove the concept as quickly as possible.
Why did you build your app on Bubble?
We felt that Bubble would be the fastest and most robust go to market no code tool while not needing to sacrifice on quality. We connected with a great developer (E's lab), who did an amazing job in building the platform.
What have been your milestones or successes so far?
Hey Hero launched in July. We now have hundreds of Creators on the marketplace and many are currently using our platform to monetize. We continue to grow every week and are excited to bring on more wonderful Creators.
What are your future plans for your app?
We have already begun to add new features to the platform and expect to continue developing in order to enhance the user experience.
